Open education P’s at the OU in Scotland: partnership, practices and the development of open educational policies
AbstractThis paper explores the role of partnership and practice in the development of open educational policies within an Scotland wide project managed by the Open University (OU) in Scotland. It begins by exploring the open educational practices (OEP) of the OU in Scotland, in particular how partnerships have informed our approach. This is placed in the context of the OU UK, and looks at the role of having central and coherent policy as a platform for practice, while also considering the destabilising effect on innovations. This review of our present approach leads onto an exploration of the broader Scottish educational policy context. It introduces a new three year HE wide project led by the OU in Scotland, and the paper will review narratives emerging from the initial phase focusing on practice, partnership and policy at an organisational, with a view to understanding the development of these at a national level.
